SummaryAfyonkarahisar-Sultandagiregion is located on an active tectonic feature like most regions ofTurkey. This region was an active earthquake area in historical andinstrumental eras and the earthquakes occurred in this region hadcreated surface fractions. Finally, an earthquake of magnitude Md =6.0 (Mw = 6.3) that the macroseismic epicenter is located near theSultandagi province struck on February 3, 2002 in this region. Inliterature, this earthquake is considered as a fragment of themigration of earthquakes to the west direction that was started byDoganhisar-Ilgın earthquake in 1921. The continuation of thismigration of earthquakes and the seismic quietness in Afyonkarahisarand its environments increases the earthquake probability in thisregion.Inthis study, GNSS stations will be established at the western part ofthe Sultandagi fault zone. By the processing of GNSS measurements atthese stations, the movement quantity of Afyonkarahisar-Sultandagiregion and strain areas in this region will be determined.Furthermore, we will use the Persistent Scatterer Interferometry(PSI) and Small Baseline Interferometry (SB) methods with TerraSAR-Xdata.Finally,we aimed to map areas of tectonics movements using time seriesanalysis and determine the long-term deformations locally by usingtogether with the superiorities of both geodetic technologies of SAR(Synthetic Aperture Radar) interferometry and GNSS (Global NavigationSatellite Systems).
